Shwe Oo Min Pagoda, Kalaw

#11 of 36 in Things to do in Kalaw
See rows of golden Buddha statues at Shwe Oo Min Pagoda, a natural limestone cave so well-proportioned that it look as though it was carefully engineered. Walk along the tunnels to see various Buddha images and statues in the cave, which has special religious significance. Some locals meditate inside the cave, and you can join them if you feel in the mood. Take the stairs to the top of the area, where you can enjoy views of more shrines in the region.

  • Probably the nicest pagoda to visit in Kalaw but nothing special if you have been to places in Hpa an or Inle  more »
  • Fascinating. I'm not sure what the Buddha would think of all the statues of worship -- he was a wonderful teacher, but Buddhism is not a religion. Well worth a visit anyway
  • The cave temples were quite interesting with hundreds and hundreds of Buddha statues which can actually be a bit overwhelming. The pagoda itself is very beautiful and many of the Buddha statues surrounding the central pagodas had lovely flowers set in their alcoves which made for some nice photography.
